JP Low Mass stainless steel, BCM, Core15 Nickel Boron coated BCG, FailZero EXO coated BCG are a few that come to mind

Do you have a need for a "special coating"? I'd get a quality bolt and forget the gimmick coatings on a second-rate bolt that just empty your pocket and give you less.

They make life a little easier in the cleaning department, but a quality bolt is just as reliable IMO. The cost difference does not justify it in my book. Since I started coating guns with Cerakote I have coated both my AR BCGs with oven cure Micro-Slick and it does make it clean up easier and run a little longer without oil, but I still run it dripping wet and would not pay for the coating if it were not free.

I tried a Fail Zero once and have a coated BCG in my LWRC (came from the factory that way) and don't see a need. The cleaning thing really is a non issue as I don't see a difference. Just a waste of money IMO. If I was to upgrade the BCG I would get a BCM to replace the RRA.

AND don't get the JP LMOS bolt unless you plan on running an adjustable gas block.

Just get a shootpeened 158 carpenter steel hp/mp tested bolt. Everything else is bling. Bling is good if you want it, but not needed.

I have a chromed BCG, it is easier to clean. But if I had to do it all again, I'd just get a regular parkerized bcg and put that extra $50 into my ammo fund.
